Source: Global Day of Jewish Learning
Last year, the Global Day of Jewish Learning celebrated the completion of Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz’s monumental translation on the Talmud. In the spirit of Rabbi Steinsaltz’s call, “Let my people know,” this year’s Global Day on November 13, 2011 will focus on the unity of the Jewish people and the central role of our Jewish texts. The mission of the Global Day is to bring the Jewish people together once a year to celebrate our foundational Jewish texts through community based learning. We hope that you will continue to be a part of this exciting day.
The Global Day of Jewish Learning was conceived to mark the completion of Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz’s monumental translation on the Talmud. Thanks to your astounding level of participation, the inaugural 2010 Global Day was a historic achievement. It reached every corner of the Jewish world and – perhaps, for the first time – brought Jews across the spectrum of beliefs and backgrounds together in a day of study and unity. You then truly went “a step ahead” by calling for an annual event.
The Global Day of Jewish Learning will now continue to bring the Jewish people together once a year to celebrate our shared Jewish text through community based learning.
The guiding values of the Global Day of Jewish Learning are: fostering Jewish unity, empowering individuals through increased Jewish knowledge, and creating meaningful shared experiences.
Your community can join the Global Day by committing now to plan an event at the Global Day website.
